We all thought Yao figured out how to deal with double teams. He just forgot how to do it now.

Did not watch any Rockets game last year, to be honest with you.

This year, they have a serious chance to get the rings.

Yao did fine in this game, as far as his efforts went. A couple of more games, hopefully, he will be more comfortable with the plays.

He would now come out of the paint for PNR, once he does not get the ball. This is a progess. Last game, he would just passively wait for the ball that would never come. He would also go to one side, so the other side would be open for penetration. All fine adjustments from coaching.

You don't seem to like tonge-in-cheek.

Rico, thank you for the play by play every game. However, today I watch on t.v., cuz I live in L.A.. Eventhough I live in L.A. I root for the Houston Rocket. I want Rocket to beat Clippers and Lakers badly. My favorite team is Houston Rocket , with my favorite basketball player , YAO MING.

Not pretty, but the bottom line is the Rox get the win and they are now 3 1/2 games behind Utah for homecourt advantage in the 1st round.

Why. Mavs beat Suns in the third quarter.

Exactly like what I said on how to beat Suns.

When you run, your center needs to run with you too. Not only the guards.

Jazz should be more cocerned than any other team right now. Jazz's style is very much like Clippers, only with better coaching. It is not going to be a piece of cake for Rockets.

After watching the last couple of games, it probably will be the best for Rockets to go to TMac for most of the games in the first round, as it is clear that Yao will be double teamed.

Yao should learn how to deal with double team. He should also improve his running speed so that he can run with his teammates rather than just jogging slowly around.

You are obessed with speed.
Where Yao should improve on his speed is his speed to get to the position, his speed to release the ball, his speed to find his team mates, his speed to deflect the ball.

To run with his teammates is waste of money.

No one can do everything. That is why there are highly paid jobs for coaches, scouts, general managers, or fans.

It is a good thing that double/triple Yao is coming up now. However, Yao still needs to be always sharp to retain the need to double him.
Always have fire in his eyes.
